I'm 65 years old and in good general health. I've been dealing with my prostate and bph for several years now. It's currently about 40g. Relatively small but still causing me problems urinating. I've learned how to self-cathe and that has kept me out of the ER several times. I'm having the urolift performed because it's supposedly the one procedure that doesn't mess up your sexual function. However, I am real nervous about having this done. I sure would appreciate some words of wisdom from any of you who have been this route. My urologist says he'll give me a shot of demerol and versaid and that should relax me. Then he'll do a prostate block through my rectum. I'm just guessing that sticking a needle into the prostate isn't the most comfortable thing. Then they inject lidocaine into the urethra and a few minutes later do the procedure. I'd really appreciate anyone letting me know this is not going to be as bad as I'm thinking. I don't mind saying, I hate medical procedures. Thanks to all for listening to me rant.
